Dear Friends

It’s a bittersweet time for all of us at Common Ground. Sadly, the time has come to send off our last Bulletin and to convene our closing series of great classes. But there is also a very happy note to be sounded. May 7 will mark the 45th anniversary of the day when Ron Miller and I signed the articles of incorporation for CG. Not many non-profit organizations flourish for so long.

The Common Ground web site will remain active. For now, it will have two sections:

1) The Common Ground Blog, featuring upcoming presentations by Jim and other CG teachers as well as various items of interest to friends of CG. The Blog will also include occasional items of interest to the Common Ground family.

2) The Sea Change Blog, featuring Jim's thoughts on his favorite topic, Cultural Evolution and the rare periods of accelerated progressive value shift that he calls "sea changes."
